5 Best Black Actors Of Hollywood We Totally Love
Independence Day, Men in Black, The Shawshank Redemption, Million Dollar Baby, Invictus, The Hurricane, Training Day and American Gangster. Do you know what all these award winning movies have in common? They all have black actors in the lead role. Where would Hollywood be without them? Here’s a rapid fire conversation with Mrs. Gossiper about the 5 best black actors of Hollywood that we love to watch.
1. Denzel Washington
"From playing a gangster to a train engineer, Denzel Washington can do it all, and can do it in style!"m, said Mrs. Gossiper. Denzel Washington has been a part of our lives since the late 80s with his movies Cry Freedom, Glory and then Malcom X. "This black actor of Hollywood is one of the best actors we've ever seen. He's won two Academy awards, two Golden Globes and many other accolades", added Mrs. Gossiper. We definitely need more actors like Denzel Washington in the world, don't we friends?

2. Will Smith
We loved Will Smith because he saved our planet in Independence Day, Men in Black and I Am Legend! "He has a great body too. If only all men could have a body as hot as Willie's", quipped Mrs. Gossiper. Will Smith tops this list of black actors of Hollywood because he is not only an awesome actor but also a cool rapper. Will Smith was thrown in the light of the media when he starred in the TV series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. He hasn't looked back since then. "I have the hots for this dude. Do you know why? Because he's delivered one blockbuster after another, received one award after the other and is a great family man too. Now isn't this black actor of Hollywood a bundle of qualities?", said Mrs. Gossiper.

3. Morgan Freeman
When a black actor in Hollywood has been around since the 70s, you know he'd have to be one of the best to survive. Morgan Freeman is a classic example of a great and versatile actor, don't you think? "Morgan Freeman has worked hard for fame and success. He is a self-made man who first started out in the movies by working as an extra. His is a truly inspirational story", said Mrs. Gossiper. This black actor of Hollywood is the best of the best with many awards and accolades under his belt including an Academy Award.

4. Halle Berry
As we talk about the best black actors of Hollywood, we cannot complete this list without Halle Berry, the bond girl from Die Another Day. "Psst, Halle Berry is also one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. I hear that Halle Berry gets paid about $10 million for a movie", said Mrs. Gossiper. "One more thing, she was also awarded the title of Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire Magazine in 2008. At 42 years of age, that's quite a feat to achieve", said Mrs. Gossiper, sounding astounded.

5. Chris Rock
Stand up comedian, actor, director and producer, Chris Rock, with his multi-talented personality, has worked up the ladder of the entertainment industry by carving a niche for himself. This black actor of Hollywood caught our eye after his popular roles in Lethal Weapon 4, The Longest Yard and Bad Company. "Check this fact out girls. Chris has been married to the same woman since 1996. He's the real man", gossiped Mrs. G.
